DREAM Connect works to pair individuals in STEM with young students. This provides young students with one-on-one mentoring and exposes them to possible careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Commit to Writing Letters
Upon registering to become a penpal you will be expected to meet deadlines.
If you fail to meet deadlines, we will give your student a new penpal.
Send Pictures, Be Personable
Try to make this a fun and exciting experience for the students. Tell them about your experiences, share pictures from your job, experiments etc. The goal is to expose them to the STEM field and promote a love for STEM.
Template and Pointers
Here is a letter head to use when writing letters. Please try to hand-write all letters. Scan and email all letters to DREAM prior to sealing letters. Do not write in cursive and if you have bad hand-writing please type and print the letter.
